The King Will Save His People
1 The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.……
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.
18Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. 19And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. 20But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” 22All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
23″Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us). 24When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.
18 耶穌基督降生的事記在下面：他母親馬利亞已經許配了約瑟，還沒有迎娶，馬利亞就從聖靈懷了孕。 19 她丈夫約瑟是個義人，不願意明明地羞辱她，想要暗暗地把她休了。 20 正思念這事的時候，有主的使者向他夢中顯現，說：「大衛的子孫約瑟，不要怕！只管娶過你的妻子馬利亞來，因她所懷的孕是從聖靈來的。 21 她將要生一個兒子，你要給他起名叫耶穌，因他要將自己的百姓從罪惡裡救出來。」 22 這一切的事成就是要應驗主藉先知所說的話， 23 說：必有童女懷孕生子；人要稱他的名為以馬內利。（以馬內利翻出來就是「 神與我們同在」。） 24 約瑟醒了，起來，就遵著主使者的吩咐把妻子娶過來； 25 只是沒有和她同房，等她生了兒子（有古卷：等她生了頭胎的兒子），就給他起名叫耶穌。
一、 耶穌是神所應許的君王Jesus is the promised King（vv. 1-17）
「基督」是什麼意思？What’s the meaning of “Christ”?
二、 耶穌是天上的君王，祂也是與我們同在、拯救我們脫離一切罪孽的神。（vv. 18-25）Jesus is the King of heaven, and He is also the God who is with us and saves us from our sins.
甲、 耶穌是從神的靈而生，因此他有天國君王的血統（18-20，24-25）Jesus’s birth is from the Holy Spirit, so He has descended from the King of heaven.
乙、 耶穌是救我們世人脫離一切罪孽的神（21）Jesus is the God who saves people around the world from their sins.
Jesus is the God who is with us.
什麼是「以馬內利」呢？What is the meaning of “Immanuel”?
結論：你可以怎麼做呢？Conclusion: What can you do?
- 認罪悔改。Confess and repent your sins to God.
我們若認自己的罪，神是信實的，是公義的，必要赦免我們的罪，洗淨我們一切的不義。If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John1:9)
- 相信耶穌基督是唯一的真神，祂必拯救你脫離一切的罪。Believe Jesus Christ He is the only true God, and He will save you from your sins.
你若口裡認耶穌為主，心裡信神叫他從死裡復活，就必得救。because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
